2020 – Assembly Bill 1071 (Limón, Monique), Agricultural Climate Adaptation Tools (Dead)
Would have required the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to administer the Agricultural Climate Adaptation Tools Program for grant disbursement. Grants under this program would have funded activities including the development of planning tools for adapting to climate change and developing resiliency strategies in the agricultural sector. This bill would have also required CDFA to conduct pilot projects and hold trainings for technical assistance with an emphasis on meeting the needs of small- and moderately-scaled farmers and ranchers, socially-disadvantaged farmers and ranchers, and female farmers and ranchers. This bill would have required CARB to compile the greenhouse gas quantification data of the grant program if the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund was the funding source. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
